Anita hosts Minister of Finance in Ottawa West-Nepean on Budget 2017
Finance Minister Bill Morneau joined Anita at Algonquin College last week for a discussion with students on Budget 2017's focus on innovation, job creation and lifelong learning. They met with students displaying their creative projects and the ways in which they are commercializing their ideas in unique ways - such as this student using laser art on Canada Goose winter coats. This was followed by a Facebook live chat answering questions about the Budget, during which he pointed to 250,000 mainly full-time jobs created in Canada in the past year.
Highlights in the budget include $11 Billion for housing, $7 Billion for child care, $21.9 Billion for green infrastructure and the first-ever gender statement. Read the full budget here.
